OPW will splash out on castle renovation


The Office of Public Works (OPW) is to press ahead with expensive renovations at Dublin Castle — despite the economic downturn. The public body has notified Dublin City Council of the intended works, including modifications to the State Apartments and the construction of a passenger lift.

Included in the plans are designs for tea rooms and an outdoor terrace, as well as the upgrade of mechanical and electrical services. The changes to the historic building, which is a protected structure, will improve visitor facilities, accessibility and safety systems, according to the planning file. The OPW did not reply to a request for a comment.
